Highlights this month included:

  • Branding a coffee shop – logo, packaging, menus and promo work. This is the third hospitality project we have worked on, and a nice change from the standard bid work [www.facebook.com/BokiCoffee]
  • Successfully completed a Home Office Employer Sponsor application. We can now employ the best people from anywhere! [https://www.gov.uk/uk-visa-sponsorship-employers/overview]
  • Learnt about setting up ‘Trusts’ or an Industrial & Provident Society (IPS) within the leisure industry [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Industrial_and_provident_society]
  • Found out how difficult it is to send a bid to Brazil – don’t forget the consignee tax ID number (ENI), aka “CNPJ number” in Brazil. Easier to send as documents rather than packages!
  • We were shortlisted for two IIID awards [http://www.iiidaward.net/]
  • Our new starter Tomoko joins us after she completed her MA Information Design at Reading University.
